La Boqueria, Barcelona

(3.1/5 based on 12,000+ reviews on the web)
Take in the local culture by meandering through the throngs of people going about their daily business at La Boqueria, arguably the country’s best-known market. Noted for selling a wide range of local products, including fish, meat, vegetables, and fruit, the market has been open since 1836. It’s worth a visit just for the colors, smells, and sights of the fresh foodstuffs displayed and sold here. Friendly vendors can tell you exactly where and how their goods were grown, raised, or harvested. Avoid driving and arrive as early as possible to miss the crowds. If you can allow time, take a seat at one of the cafes and spend a few moments observing other travelers as they search for a little bit of something Spanish to take home with them. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to La Boqueria and many more Barcelona attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Barcelona itinerary planner.

  • Even if you don't go to buy anything, the truth is what a good time seeing the different posts, very entertaining

  • I am not sure why people travel across the globe and find that they have to visit this. It's just an open air food market. Just like any other open air market in the US or other european cities. The f...  more »
  • Walking among the stalls of merchants of the Boqueria is impossible not to find something interesting and why wait until you get home to enjoy it when you can have at the moment? ;-)

  • Looking at the reviews over a year ago i believe the 'all you can eat' buffet options were not available. Went with some friends today just by casuality and we had the 10euro all you can eat salad, sea food, etc...it was worth it! Clean, nicely decorated, the host was very friendly (unlikely for spanish people) and overall it was a nice enviroment. Maybe they've changed administration or something..anyways i will definitely recommend it to anyone for a quick pit stop.
  • Tried it tonight. For Barcelona, they literally must've had to work hard to make it taste that bad. The worst food I've had in all of Spain. Save your twenty six euros and go anywhere else.
  • Like everybody said, avoid at all cost. I feel unfortunate that we stumbled upon this place on our first date of arrival. The food is terrible and overpriced.
  • Soggy and unfresh salad, expensive and not clean?!
  • Expensive, horrible food. the chicken with thympotato was a coalbricket, which has never seen any herbs. the chicken paella had 2,5 chicken pieces in it and was burned. The first real bad experience in Barcelona!!!
